Smile Hiring: News admin

A lot of fun stuff and updates are happening on Graal servers but not a lot of news are added to graal.net (and the serverlist news). For improving that situation it would be good to have some dedicated staff who talk to server staff to being news to graal.net. This is mainly a helper position and will eventually get global level 1 (RC) to be able to talk to staff. The person who is managing this should be someone who comes along nicely with the staff on servers.

Some questions for applicants:
1. What is your Graal account name?
2. Do you have gold?
3. What is your past experience? (Please post only relevant experience such as creation of news, and updates on graal.net)
4. What would you like to do if given the position?
5. Why should you be given the position over the other applicants?

Wow, I know the most perfect person for that position. Are you asking for applications via the forums, or would it be possible to send an e-mail?

I don't. If someone angers her, she might do what she did on the forums.

I'm quite confused here. Will there be one person to be the "News Admin", or a whole team who handle news?

Do you think she'll do that to the primary school message system that she works for too, eventually? What about the college newspaper she wrote articles for? What about the Graal wiki articles she has already written? The news she often submits? Sounds like a pretty bad association to her character you've got there.

Most likely one person as the News Admin. It would also most likely be that News Admin choice as to if they wish to hire a team or conduct gathering news on their own.

The horrible things she said about unixmad on the forums is what I saw. Stefan should look into all histories of applicants, including behavior on the forums.

That's a false representation of why she was banned, because I have never seen her post a single thing about unixmad. Now you're just getting desperate love.

Ok. Stefan can view the deleted posts and threads.
You are right, I was thinking of someone else.
Her threads and posts where pretty nasty none-the-less, and all because a thread of hers was deleted.
Stefan can make his own judgment on it. I'm not going to discuss it, just bringing it to his attention.

Here's a suggestion for those applying for this position. Not so long ago I was creating a personal statement for University and Master Storm introduced me to the concept of Flesch–Kincaid Readability Tests. The tests are there to provide a review of the readability of text as the title implies, and with Graal being a game that is provided for users of all different ages and backgrounds, the news you should be submitting should be easy to read.

I've ran a couple of the current news posts through the online readability scales (http://labs.translated.net/text-readability/ and http://www.editcentral.com/gwt/com.e...ral.EC/EC.html) and at current the news posts are being rated as average, which just isn't good enough. There are a lot of jargon terms used in the current news articles and as the news is for the players it would be in good form to reduce this and attempt to liven the articles up. I hope that whoever gets the position takes a look at other games and uses this as an opportunity to make our new articles more community based, rather than at current where it all seems a little cheesy or too technical.
